Telemundo's CASO CERRADO EDICION ESTELAR Returns Today
For the third year in a row, the beloved Dra. Ana María Polo returns to California to help the community solve unusual, difficult and surprising cases. Broadcasting from an open-air set in Los Angeles's famous Placita Olvera, viewers will witness a series of cases of major concerns in today's society including bullying, medical marijuana use, discrimination, immigration, abusive labor practices and sexual dysfunction, among others.
"Caso Cerrado Edición Estelar" from Los Angeles begin airing today, Monday, October 21 at 7pm/6c through the end of November. Viewers can find more about "Caso Cerrado Edición Estelar" and Dr. Polo on Twitter: @DraPoloOficial (https://twitter.com/DraPoloOficial) and @CasoCerradoTV (https://twitter.com/CasoCerradoTV); Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DoctoraAnaMariaPolo and https://www.Facebook.com/CasoCerradoTelemundo; and the Telemundo website: http://www.telemundo.com/CasoCerrado.
"I get very excited every time I have the opportunity to go to California to film the show," said Dra. Polo. "Even though the problems facing the Hispanic community are the same regardless of city or state, the reality is that every place has its own special characteristics. West Coast audiences in particular need legal advice about issues such as immigration and discrimination, which have an especially strong impact in this part of the country. For me, filming on location outside of the studio is a different experience and a very important one, because it allows me to see my audience's needs up close," she concluded.
Among the cases airing during this period, come the controversial issue of medical marijuana use and cyber-bullying in a teenage victim who tries to commit suicide. Also, an undocumented Mexican immigrant desperate to find her daughter, as well as a child labor exploitation case abused and discriminated by the employer.
"Caso Cerrado" is considered the most successful court show in Spanish-language television, currently ranked as the number one Spanish-language program in its time slot across key demos. For more than a decade, the program has maintained a strong and undivided connection with the Hispanic community from coast to coast. In 2010, "Caso Cerrado with Ana Maria Polo" made history by becoming the first Spanish language show nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award. The great success garnered by "Caso Cerrado" motivated Telemundo to launch "Caso Cerrado Edición Estelar" (Case Closed Primetime Edition) (M-F 7PM). The program, which premiered in high definition format, immerses viewers in the popular show's most extraordinary cases and disputes, presented with its staple dynamism and energy.
With more than 20 years of experience practicing law, Dr. Ana Maria Polo has been recognized with several awards, including the prestigious Mike Leland Award in 2011, which honors people and organizations within the world of communications that demonstrate humanitarian commitment. That same year she was named the first Hispanic ambassador for the renowned national non-profit organization Stand up to Cancer. Dr. Polo, who is also a successful published author, is intimately involved and deeply committed to several other issues including the fight for human rights and against discrimination.
